Wake up, meditate and pray, go into the kitchen, measure out coffee beans, grind them, heat up water, rinse filter, pour in coffee grounds, then a bit of hot water to let grounds bloom..
Open sketchbook, place cup of fresh brewed coffee next to it.
Take off watch, turn off phone, internet, and any external noise.
Take the “particular” pen and lay it upon new blank page.
Take a moment, breathe in, and exhale out. Work towards calm.
Wait. Yes, just wait.
When it is time, you will know.
Pick up the pen and let whatever is the brain come out.
Scribble, think, scribble, wonder, doodle, write, erase, scribble, think, doodle, draw, flip it, twist it, bend it, scribble, write, scribble, think, scribble, doodle, stare off into space, take a sip of coffee, throw away pen with no more ink, murmur “you dork, why didn’t you see that?” draw, scribble, scribble, doodle, draw, look at, consider, imagine, scribble, doodle think, ”oh my, the page is full,” take a sip of coffee…
Turn to a new blank page.
Repeat process, until the brain overheats and starts going too fast, or it shuts down with nothing left to give
Take a sip of coffee and go over what was put on the paper and see what rises to the top of all the ideas.
There is the path for the rest of your day as the rest of the world begins to wake up.
Such is the enjoyment of a great brainstorm session
